Security for Teleworkers
Remote workers commonly use their own equipment and work in an unsecured space. This worsens their exposure to cyber attacks and demands judicious deployment of firewalls, remote endpoint monitoring, and the enforcement of security policies in compliance with leading practices. Progent's veteran roster of certified cybersecurity professionals can help your organization to design, deploy and administer a modern security environment that guards critical data in networks that incorporate an at-home workforce.

  • Firewalls allow companies to build a network environment that can be securely utilized by local users as well as by an at-home workforce, mobile employees, vendors, clients, and other stakeholders. Modern firewall appliances permit you to configure and control appropriate access rights to different classes of users and to scale your network and adjust your security as your business evolves and as cyber threats grow more complex. Progent supports both current and older firewall appliances from all major manufacturers like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, WatchGuard, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet.

  • Online Endpoint Monitoring makes it easy to track the various computers utilized by teleworkers and either block or spot and mitigate the latest threats such as ransomware. With Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a lightweight agent is put on every secured endpoint, watching all activity and using advanced AI technology to detect new threats at inception. When a cyberattack is discovered, ProSight ASM instantly disconnects the impacted endpoint from the corporate network to contain the threat. Since the ProSight ASM agent is self-contained, endpoints remain secure even if they are not connected to the Internet.

  • Security Audits can evaluate the vulnerability of your information system to all classes of external and internal security threats for a network that includes at-home workers. Progent can run online, automated cybersecurity inventory software for rapidly and economically uncovering a wide variety of security weaknesses that can be found via the Internet. Progent's security assessment consulting services, which can be provided by security professionals with top certifications including CISA, CISSP, and GIAC, can help your company to audit your procedures and governance policies and assess your WAN infrastructure to allow you to implement top-level security for your telecommuters.
